One year ago today, one of the scariest moments of my life occurred. I was in the church office writing. I stood up to go somewhere and realized I could not walk. I stumbled home to lie on the bed, scared and hurting. Soon it spread to my arms and hands.
Several doctor’s appointments and tests followed. I eventually went to the Mayo Clinic and spent five weeks at a Pain Rehabilitation Center.
I suffer from a neurological condition called Functional Movement Disorder. My doctors do not know why this happened or how to treat it.
